I finally solved my “packing problem” before I went to bed, and right before watching the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Hey the Sports Diva has her priorities, packing or no packing, take a back seat, travel problems.

I took a suitcase that I should have packed in the first place .

I wouldn’t have been so “stressed out” like I’m watching the Seventh game of the World Series or the Stanley Cup Finals.

It was my old reliable suitcase that my sister in law gave me and one that I’ve taken on trips before.

My sister in law knows that the Sports Diva can never have enough luggage, so rather than her giving them away or throwing away, she calls me up and says, “I’ve got a suitcase you might like.”

Plus this suitcase is perfect for a “fashionista” like me.

It fit everything.

No worries.

Now I can sit back with my Starbucks Vanilla Latte, cold cuts and pretzels and relax before I get to Washington DC.


I know I just did my post on what’s in my suitcase, but now I’m feeling something that I never felt in fifty million years of doing 30 Plus Teams Tour of anywhere, even when I didn’t know what a 30 Plus Teams Tour was.

I have packed and repacked so many times that it’s not even funny.

Did I mention that I leave in less than 24 hours and STILL haven’t packed yet?

So what’s the issue?

I have so many winter clothes that it makes my bags heavy as an elephant..

Now I’ve traveled before when it’s cold but this year the weather is, pardon my expression, basically on some split personality trip.

We aren’t even in winter yet but places are having frost warnings all ready, including the place I’m going to.

I guess by the time I go to bed, I’ll have figured this little travel pressure problem out.
